6. Sarastro’s palace
The next scene finds us in Sarastro’s palace, where his slave, Monostatos, brings Pamina into the room. Just as he does so, Papageno, who has gone ahead of Tamino, arrives in. Both him and Monostatos are startled by each other’s appearance, and they flee in opposite directions. Pictured: Burkhard Ulrich as Monostatos and Genia K?hmeier as Pamina, Salzburg Festival, 2006.
